Tiatto returns in Senior Cup win over Utd

Last updated : 08 January 2004 By Ben Collins
The Aussie played for 85 minutes and was denied twice by United keeper Ben Williams in the first half.

United took the lead on 7 minutes through American Kenny Cooper, but created little else as Williams performed wonders to keep City at bay.

The United keeper prevented both Christian Negouai and Stephen Elliott from scoring the equaliser.

But the leveller eventually came on 41 minutes through Bradley Wright-Phillips.

Negoaui then had an effort cleared off the line just after the break while Wright-Phillips was also denied by Williams.

City finally got the winner they deserved on 76 minutes thorugh Irish striker, Stephen Elliott.

Lee Croft's corner was cleared but headed back in by Stephen Jordan. Elliott then tuned to fire in the winner.
